Here's an interesting legal article from Murthy.com that answers these questions: http://www.murthy.com/news/n_finnat.html 

From the intro:  

"As a result of the troubled U.S. economy, many individuals have encountered financial hardships. For some, these difficulties have led to foreclosure, bankruptcy, and unpaid debts. This, in turn, has generated questions regarding whether various financial problems might affect one's ability to naturalize to U.S. citizenship.
